in the end, for me the sequence I posted above worked, without need to put stock back first (I was on latest stock already), and also the IMEI backup I created, is not possible to restore, but hopefully IMEI is still there

I could still use a newer TWRP to replace CWM

    [HUAWEI_G700][ROM]LolliKat_V4

    I'd like to pull this to front again for those still looking for custom ROMs as there is still some development for the phone.

    Two weeks ago I accidentially stumbled across a bunch of new ROM ports for the G700. It took me some time to gather useful information about those but in the end, after reading a lot, asking people who speak Russian, used Google Translate for Italian posts and a little testing I'm running a Kitkat ROM on my G700 and it's running smoother and more stable than stock.

    So I thought I should share my findings - what I already did in a German forum but wanted to post this here as well.

    User blackrebel of the Italian Androidiani forum ported around 6 different Kitkat ROMs for the device. He's the developer of a new kernel for the G700 as well (if Im correct all ports use this kernel).

    Those ROMs can't be compared with former ported ROMs for the G700.

    1. Clean localization (without Russian or Chinese remains)
    2. no bugs like battery drain, not working system apps or settings etc.
    3. Working & bug-free Dual-SIM
    4. Working & bug-free external and internal SD card
    5. A bunch of settings and fine tuning (kernel, too)
    6. Engineer Mode
    7. Xposed Framework
    8. etc.

    I ran the AOSP 4.4.4 Stable V2 before. It wasn't bad but it's a bit sparse with possibilities regarding settings and customization and - like most of the 4.4x G700-ROMs of 4PDA - there's a battery drain bug.

    I've tested 2 of blackrebel's ports and I'm running "LolliKat_V4" now. As the name suggests, it's a Lollipop style ROM (but no heavy, blinky animations) and it installs and runs like a charm.

    Disclaimer: I'm only reporting here what I did myself - your mileage may vary, no warranty that this works for you. Furthermore, if you have any questions I'll try to respond but you should be aware that I probably can't help.
    WARNING: You may break your phone and lose all your data - so make a complete backup first!

    Important: There's a simple method to avoid loss of your phone's IMEI when flashing a new ROM (taken from the Androidiani forum) which I strongly suggest to follow (so I've included it into the description - if you know what you're doing feel free to do it your way).

    Requirements:
    • Custom recovery (Clockworkmod or TWRP)
    • Packing app (7zip, WinRAR, ...)

    Installation:
    1. To avoid IMEI loss download this file
    2. Extract it (with all paths)
    3. Copy the file /system/etc/firmware/modem.img of your old/current ROM
      to /system/etc/firmware of the extracted files
    4. Rename modem.img to modem_1_3g_n.img
    5. Copy the same file to the same location so you end up with 2 files in the directory
      modem.img and modem_1_3g_n.img
    6. Copy the contents of the directory
      /system/etc/MDDB (your old/current ROM)
      to /system/etc/MDDB of the extracted files
    7. Pack the file again
    8. Download the ROM here
    9. Copy both, the ROM and the modem ZIP file into the root of your SD card
    10. Boot into recovery
    11. "Wipe all User Data/Factory Reset" or "Wipe data" (depending on your recovery), "Wipe Dalvik-Cache"
    12. "Install from ZIP"
    13. Choose ROM file and install
    14. "Install from ZIP" again
    15. Choose installazione_modem.zip and install
    16. Reboot
    17. Enjoy!

    I'm running the ROM for a week now and I'm pretty much satisfied.

    Feel free to try the other ROMs of the author/dev/porter - I expect those to be of the same quality - but that's just guessing:

    [HUAWEI G700][ROM]AOSP 4.4.2 by blackrebel (I did test that one - found it to sparse)
    GidKat_Ultimate_Art_Edition_Dolby_Multi_V2
    Alice Project reborn v8.4
    Android L (has little to nothing to do with Lollipop)
    StayOS v3

    Hi @chamaruco I've seen you've installed Italian, all submenus are in Italian and there are some parts that are in English?
    Thanks

    Is italian because i've used more locale to change it. And yes all menus are italian
    If you need you can choose other languages

    Thanks for your tutorial, this is very nice!
    Hi, nice to see there's still some activity with the G700 :)

    I have a question and I hope you may have time to reply.
    The step to flash back to stock, is it compulsory also if I am anready running the latest stock for u10?

    Last one is, is there a stable 4.4.4 for this one today?
    Unfortunately I don't have any time anymore for phone hacking. My current device isn't even rooted. So, I have no idea if there's a stable 4.4.4 (or even 5.x) out there. I'm not sure about flashing back stock, either.

    EDIT: I share to help others

    I rooted with Kingroot , because Framaroot did not work on mine
    I installed CWM with this tutorial
    I made a backup of the IMEI but I could not import it back (maybe because I have CWM instead of TWRP)
    I installed KK 4.4.4 and the phone seems to work

    Is there any TWRP that is newer than that CWM please?
    I can't exactly remember what I've used to root mine. About the recovery I'm relatively sure that I installed CWM as well (I think I even remember that tutorial).
    I don't have a clue regarding the IMEI - I believe mine either stuck or it worked for me, as out of my head I didn't have to restore anything.

    ...and yay - Lineage OS on the G700! I guess I would've killed someone to have that back then 😝

    Sorry that I can't be of more help here 😬
